with your secretary of state, jon husted, do you trust the voting process in ohio? >> oh, absolutely. i think that we're going to see what dennis and i stood up for is the same principles we started this job with and that's to give the voters the right to vote as often as they did in 2008 and with the federal court's ruling, those folks are going to be able to vote early. they are going to be able to vote on the weekend before election day. so what we've stood up for has been accomplished in oand i wout change anything in one way. the secretary is not going to suppress the vote in ohio. we're going to win for barack obama on election day and carry montgomery county to the top of the blue tag and the rest of the state of ohio. there is no way that this secretary of state is going to fool the people of ohio and we intend to win this election. this is just one mild stop along the way for dennis and i. we have done the right thing, we're proud of what we've done, and we appreciate the support we've gotten from the people in ohio. everywhere we've been, people have stood up for us, our frien

'm doing a debate with jon stewart on saturday in washington, and i'm sure stewart is going to have zingers all over the place, but if you come in with zingers, you sound stilted, all right. they have to just owe car to you, so if stewart says something dumb which is almost a given, i'm going to pop him, all right. but i don't know how, and so romney's got to have enough confidence in his intellectual acumen to get in there, but if he comes in with all this rehearsed stuff, he's just going to come across as a samb by. >> how do you feel about what the polls say right now? do you think romney is truly behind, or is that closer race than some would have us believe? >> i think romney is running a little bit behind but if he does well on wednesday night he's going to close the gap. look, romney has to look ahead. people know how they feel now. he can't say the president did this, that or the other thing. he has to say this is what i can do for you and make your life better. if he can do that, all right, and put the president on the defensive a few times, he'll gain. >> last thing on this, what
policy. >> i think so. what does he think he is, jon meacham with his forthcoming book? he's had a forthcoming book since jefferson, like, purchased the louisiana purchase. >> i know. >> pulitzer prize. >> it's coming, though. so, guys, let's talk about -- what do we have? >> this is what david axelrod called romney's international trip. >> what's that? >> on "meet the press" yesterday. a dukes of hazzard tour of international destinations. that was good. thank you for that. perfect. >> let's talk about the latest poll that they were talking about yesterday on "meet the press." nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, dead even. >> 47-47. >> i think that fits the feel of everybody that i've talked to. you know, you guys hear it all the time. i hear it all the time. the question, who's going to win? who's going to win? and i've been saying for a couple weeks, probably obama by a few points now. i have absolutely no idea. and a strange thing has happened, mika. you actually have, instead of the romney people acting a little nervous and crazy, which they have, we have for a year, you no
the apology. >> jon stewart noticed something after watching the debate. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i felt the same as the president did. i supported his action there. absolutely the right thing to do to have crippling sanctions. >> i think romney's leaning obama. >> a little late night fun at the candidate's expense. a little more time to go. that's going to wrap things up for me. see you tomorrow.

similar. jon stewart did a fabulous job of contrasting them, saying their policies are the same, just choose what color you want. you look at the two candidates, there were a lot of similarities. here you have these critical swing states and it's all going to come down really to the ground game in both places. it's a question of really likability. who do we trust more, because right now, what you see in the polls is on the economy, the american people are saying both candidates as almost equally trustworthy in terms of who can move the economy. so it comes down to in the end, what do those key swing states think. on the women's issues, i will say they're not women's issues. they are men and family issues as well. because reproductive justice and opportunities for access to health care, access to birth control, just as much affects men as it does women. >> quite right. >> they don't affect men the same way. men can't get pregnant. this is a fundamental difference. come on. come on. and if a man were to get raped, pregnancy is not a possibility. so let's be careful -- >> there were thre
on late night tv since march. he's not doing cool interviews with jon stewart and any other folks you kids enjoy so much. why not? what do you think gives there? >> i think that he is trying to reach the young voters in other ways. just yesterday his wife anne stopped in gainesville. i got to meet with her. he's letting his message sink in other ways. he is focusing more on the economy. i think this is a message reaching students without having to go through mtv and leno. he is reaching them in other ways. he is active on the social media. the campaign is in general. i think he's reaching voters still. >> really quickly here, just five, ten seconds from each of you. a lot has been made of enthusiasm among young voters. billy, i assume this is your first time being able to vote? >> this is my first time voting for president, yes. >> are you as enthusiastic as you think some folks were four years ago who are your age? >> i'm incredibly enthusiastic. talking about the work that goes into getting students out to vote on campus, it's all worth it in the end. the type of progress we've seen the

about it either by the >> moderator: jon margolis? >> he claimed that president bush and republicans would lead the trust fund and you are bound to protect it. as chairman of the senate finance committee you must know that there is something to the argument of your fellow democrat that some restraint on social security growth may be needed for the benefits as regular income. in fact you once voted for and spoke for a six month delay on the cost of living increases for social security. senator, aren't you and governor dukakis using this issue politically rather than dealing with it responsibly? bentsen: i hate to disappoint my good friend bob strauss but we have a contract with the american people on social security, and social security is an issue where senator quayle voted eight times to cut the benefits on social security. this administration came and tried to cut the benefits $122 a month for the retirees to cut the benefits for 62-year-old retirees tried to do an end run on social security when they first came in after promising not to cut it, to cut it by some 20 million. and wh
that as a way out of this. whether jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his -- wide jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. -- whether john can explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. >> it is so difficult to be a government official. you have to represent all of these competing interests. yes, you want to provide lawsuits that combine the -- provide accountability for bad human rights abuses. you want to uphold international law and prevent abusive reciprocal actions. in the first round of briefing, the administration filed a brief which people applauded. yes, corporations can be held liable for violations of international law. that was not a surprise. in the second brief, the administration sided with shell and said no this case should be dismissed. it is inappropriate for that statute to be used to supply jurisdiction for u.s. courts to hear a case brought by aliens against a foreign company in a foreign country for aiding and abetting the ax of a foreign government. you have the solicitor general of the united states arguing th
the other day and jon stewart gave him tough questions about benghazi and libya and we got some actual information and news of course the headline about not being optimal situation the loss of four americans there. >> yeah, look, i mean jon stewart is the best of the non-journalist news outlets and that he does occasionally ask tough questions. i mean, saying that he he is the most serious of the comedy show hosts is not a huge compliment. it's like the best oktoberfest in orlando. or the best gas station sushi in alabama. he asks some serious question. i'm sure obama was mispleased to be asked serious question on those shows. overall strategy like this new ad comparing voting for the first time to losing your virginity these are desperate plays by a campaign that basically wants to argue on cultural terms and appeal to least informed voters most emotional voters rather than making a coherent case defending his own record and defending what he might do in the second term. >> do you think that youth voters come out and vote anywhere near the same capacity that they did in 2008. this clo
